Rest In His Arms

Archdiocese of Chicago Deacon Jim Pauwels speaks about Rest in His Arms, a ministry that provides the dignity of a Christian burial for children, many of them tiny infants, whose remains have been abandoned. The children might be left in a garbage dump, along the side of the road, in a viaduct on a busy city street or in the county morgue. The spiritual care that Deacon Jim and those who work with him attends to not only the children but also the communities in which the bodies are found. Tragedy abounds but hope endures. Deacon Jim speaks with the regular hosts, Deacons Richard Hudzik and Dave Brencic. For more information, go to

Catholic Relief Services

Chicago Deacon Michael Fekete joins co-hosts Deacons Richard Hudzik and Dave Brencic to talk about CRS--Catholic Relief Services. Deacon Fekete speaks of his recent trip to Uganda to see the life-saving and faith-witnessing work of CRS. Also explored in this program are how we might here help the work of CRS and how CRS is serving people both domestically and in over 100 countries around the world. CRS puts to work our Baptismal gifts. Each baptized person is called to be "priest, prophet and king." CRS helps us all do that.

The ecumenical group travels downstate to Logan Correctional Center and conducts retreats and monthly Bible studies with women incarcerated in the maximum-security prison. Shawn says the group brings “life-giving water – God’s message of unconditional love and forgiveness.”

Marriage, Chastity and Respect for Life Arise from God’s Love for Each of us.

The Archdiocese’s Senior Coordinator for Respect Life Ministry and Chastity Education Dawn Fitzpatrick joins Deacons Dave Brencic and Richard Hudzik for a discussion on the witness of marriage, the meaning of chastity and how both topics relate to respect for life. Employing an anthropology that articulates our status as Children of God, the conversation addresses the fact that God’s love for us both dignifies us and calls for us to honor each other with dignity.

Wisdom from Suffering

Deacons Stuart Heyes and Dave Brencic join Deacon Richard Hudzik for a discussion on the ministerial response to those suffering from illness. Deacon Dave related his own recent lengthy recovery from some broken bones and Deacon Stuart spoke of the efforts of parish-based ministers of care. These many minsters of care, assisted by some deacons, engage in one-on-one visiting, with prayer and the Eucharist. The ministers of care attend to both body and soul of those separated from physical presence at the Sunday Eucharist. The difficult concept of redemptive suffering was raised, as expressed in St. Paul’s Letter to the Colossians and in Pope St. John Paul’s letter “Salvfici doloris.”
